Don't let a DUI damage your life in Louisiana

Getting accused of a DUI can put you in a precarious position. If you drive for work, you could be at risk of losing your job. If you need your vehicle to take your kids to school or to get to activities, these things could be impacted as well. So, what do you do if you're accused of driving drunk? You defend yourself and work to get yourself let go due to your innocence or with a lesser charge if you're found to be guilty.

In Louisiana, a DUI conviction is incredibly serious, and the penalties can be severe. Prison time, high fines and fees, community services, or restricted or revoked driving privileges are all possible. When you work to defend yourself, you'll want to take steps to reduce those penalties and to have a result in your favor. It's possible to have your charges dismissed in some cases, but when they can't be, you may be able to seek reduced fines, community service in place of prison, or even the restoration of your driving privileges after you've participated in driving training or other courses.

If you're convicted of drunk driving without providing a defense, the court may decide on a range of punishments that you have little to no say in. The conviction itself can follow you for years or even the rest of your life, influencing what happens to you if you ever cross the law again.

Our website has more information on how you can defend yourself and seek lesser penalties for your DUI charge. Although you may need help to defend yourself, your future relies on how you respond to this situation.
